I try to ship the day after receiving an order but the shipping time may be as long as a week - this is because we lose power so frequently here in the middle-of-nowhere, TN:) Without power, I am without a computer. In the fall of 2019, we had no power for ten full days.
INTERNATIONAL BUYERS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY TAXES WHICH MAY BE LEVIED BY THEIR COUNTRY. I WILL NOT FALSIFY A CLAIMS FORM and will cancel an order if asked to do so. I will not send patterns internationally marked as a letter so please do not ask. This is against the law.
I ship sewing patterns first class international via the US postal service. Their shipping costs for overseas mail is quite high - I have NO CONTROL over the post office.
